From the author:I have grown up in India and traveled most of my childhood thanks to my father's postings in the military.I owe my upbringing to my mother, a teacher.I am married to an artist, Aparajita Jain, for whose unwavering love and support I am eternally grateful.
I am a Management Consultant by profession,and a philosopher by passion. I employ Socrates' mode of discovery and Spinoza's thought of Divine extension in everything in nature. I enjoy reading literature that evokes logical reasoning and a similar scientific approach can be sensed in my writing. However, I am not a philosophy historian, which most students of philosophy end up becoming. I quote great philosophers to present them to the readers but I do not use their conclusions to validate my proposed thought.
I believe in continuous evolution of thought and spirituality. I would like my readers to focus their attentions more on the process of reasoning that I apply in my writing and less on the outcome.My work would be deemed successful if it guides the reader towards self realization of answers to his doubts. The answer may conform with my conclusions or may not. I am comfortable and pleased with either result.
I strive to make topics of philosophy and spirituality more accessible to common people. The answers lie right here, within the eco-system that we live in. It does not require extraordinary efforts to seek them, but a disciplined and well guided method of reasoning.

by Raunak Mahajan
This book is a compilation of seven short essays from my online blog and began as an attempt to create a collection of topics for a youth debating club to discuss. Each of the following essays aims at using logical reasoning to arrive at an opinion. Since several algorithms can be concocted in the human mind, such an approach yields conclusions that are highly debatable.
